There are several I watch from time to time: The Aspie World, Asperger’s From the Inside, Paige Layle, IndieAndy. I also used to watch Stephanie Bethany a lot but she hasn’t appeared in my feed much lately.

I watch a lot of Charlotte Dobre, she's a Canadian on YouTube who make cheeky comments about online content as the main content of her videos, but well I like her commentary and she makes me laugh with some of the cheeky things she says. And I guess sometimes I wonder if she has any autism, or is just one of those NT people who doesn't really give a crap of what people think either way if she is on the spectrum or not I enjoy her content.

Seems like she really does not give a crap at the end of the day what people think, and well idk I like that about her I suppose. Maybe I got a bisexual crush on her....I am happy with my boyfriend, but I'd be lying if I said I never get attracted to women.

I don't watch any autism-related channels routinely as I generally don't find them that interesting. I did recently find this bloke though:

Joe Jamfrey: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCotuCd ... i-A/videos

He is quite good, and worth a watch.

I also have my own YouTube channel but it has nothing to do with autism.

I feel sorry for myself sometimes when I think of all the things I miss. I have very poor visual and audio processing and watching videos makes me motion sick. Trying to use CC where there is motion behind it makes me sick too, so videos, movies and almost anything done in "real time" doesn't work for me. I love transcripts where I can get the information in a format that doesn't make me sick. Most youtube, etc do not have that. I know I miss out on so much, sometimes it hurts a little. I am so grateful to be able to read and write so that I can gain info and communicate in those ways.

My favourite autistic YT channel is The Big Lez Show. Makes me laugh and it doesn't involve attention seeking humans.

Can't remember if its been mentioned before, but Craig Evan's "Autism Hangout" is an excellent channel. For the last 15 years or so he has done a series called Ask Dr Tony, where viewers submit questions for Tony Attwood to answer/discuss.

https://www.youtube.com/@autismhangout

They recently announced that they are retiring and probably won't be doing any more, but there is 15 years worth for those who haven't seen it before.

I often watch Orion Kelly's YouTube channel/series, "That Autistic Guy."

No. Which is weird since I get pretty infuriated when people online post misconceptions about autism and I'm not afraid to comment that I'm on the spectrum.

Mostly I watch videos that are based off my own interests like golden age animation, cats, guinea pigs, simulation video games, video game music, weird historical stuff, and reviews of junky bootleg toys and mockbuster animated movies.
Even though I feel like I'm the only person watching who is middle aged and female.

Not really.

Most of the YouTube I watch is related to special interests.
